Film Events 11/26-12/4 | Film Events | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Film Events 11/26-12/4



National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

The Griswold clan returns with another attempt to make solid family memories. This time instead of going to Wally World or Europe, all they want to do is stay at home and have a successful Christmas with each other. What they fail to realize is Christmas will more than likely be ruined thanks to Randy Quaid, poor planning and Clark Griswold's inability to make one correct decision in his entire life. Sponsored by Worthy Brewing and BendFilm, there will also be an ugly Christmas Sweater parade right before the movie so we can actually tell our Grandmas we wore it without lying.

7 pm. Fri., Nov. 28. Tower Theatre, 835 NW Wall St. $12.

The Trailrunning Film Festival

The touring festival stops in Bend on its way South with a packed lineup of outdoor films. Some of the movies include Running the Edge: The Colorado Trail, which follows a crazy person as he averages 60 miles and 22,000 feet of elevation change per day for over 8 days. Rainshadow Year in Review is a race video showing what makes their tracks so unique. 2014 Gorge Waterfalls 100k shows parts of the toughest Rainshadow race. Including several other race videos and film shorts, the Trailrunning Film Festival will be perfect for people who feel like hiking at a reasonable pace is for suckers.

6 pm. Wed., Nov. 26. Volcanic Theater Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $15-$25.

Salt of the Earth

This was the first film in history blacklisted due to its alleged ties with communist politics. In actuality, the film was one of the first to promote a feminist agenda, while also being pro-union in a time when the U.S. government only wanted to focus on the Cold War. Following the neo-realist style new to the United States in the 1950s, Salt of the Earth was far ahead of its time then and is, in some ways, just as topical now.

6:30 pm. Tue., Dec. 2. First Presbyterian Church. 230 NE 9th. Free.

Final Pose

A yoga instructor from Sisters is diagnosed with terminal cancer and comes to terms with her fears and what she's leaving behind. The powerful and bittersweet documentary will be screened in Sisters and will be followed by a panel including representatives of Bend Ashtanga Yoga, Compassion and Choices, Final Pose and Partners in Care.

7 pm. Wed., Dec. 3. The Belfry, 302 Main St., Sisters. $5-$10.
